Event Details

Timewise are the UK’s leading experts on flexible working; campaigning, researching and advising employers on transforming their working practices. We are delighted to welcome Claire Campbell, Timewise Programme Director, to run this workshop for us, providing you an insight into developing flexible working practices in your organisation.

The demand for flexible working now is way exceeding supply, with still only 1 in 10 jobs proactively offering it to candidates. Being able to offer jobs flexibly is a great way to attract diverse talent pools, improve productivity and start to address your gender pay gap, but it needs to be done in a way which delivers benefits to both individuals and the organisation.

 Claire will help you to:

  • understand the range of ways people can work flexibly and the key principles of flexible job design
  • make the case to senior managers to offer more workplace flexibility
  • learn from examples of organisations who have made flexible working a workforce priority and the impact it has had.

 This is a practical session, which will leave you with plenty of ideas for taking forward this agenda in your organisation.  

 The key objectives form the session are:

  • To engage and train CIPD members to become Flexible Hiring Champions and influence more employers to adopt flexible hiring
  • To provide new insight into flexible hiring and help champions feel more equipped to influence employer action
  • To gain the tools to make their organisation an effective flexible working employer and raise the profile of their organisation
  • To develop the community of HR members committed to driving forward flexible working/gender equality/inclusive workplaces

During the session you will consider what is flexible hiring is, assess whether your organisation is ready for flexible hiring, consider your business case for flexible hiring and therefore overcoming objections to flexible working. After the workshop you will have the tools to build flexible hiring into your recruitment practices and how to effectively communicate such a message to candidates, along with an action plan for you to help implement flexible hiring internally.

This session is normally priced at £150 per delegate and is therefore heavily subsidised.

The event will commence at 9.30am with refreshments, with the event finishing at approximately 1pm.
